A fundraising page to help cover the funeral costs/medical expenses of Robb Lawson.."A friend, a theologian, and a brother."

There are few people who can touch your life like my friend Robb did mine. Robb had a normal life up until the age of nine, when he was diagnosed with a degenerative skin and muscle disease. He was then confined to a wheelchair. Over the course of his life, constant health issues raged his small frail body. I had the amazing privilege of getting to know Robb the last five years of his Life. Those that knew Robb, knew how much he loved the Lord. Robb did not allow his life circumstances to keep him down. He pursued a Doctorate in theology as well as many other degrees. Robb's life motto was, "Its not about me, but about Christ!" Robb didnt just say that, he LIVED that out in his daily life.

Robb, to me was an amazing friend, a theologian and like a brother. He knew how to love others and always looked for opportunities to show me how to live more Christ like.

I had been at an evangelism event in New York City, and got a call from Robb's mom..She was informing me that Robb had died the night before. I knew that it was coming eventually, but I was not in any respects ready for it to be this soon. I felt as someone had ripped my heart from me. My best friend was gone...And as i think about Robb's life over and over. I am amazed at how he lived it. He did not get bitter over life circumstances! Robb had the proper perspective in life, he lived in in the view of seeing Christ one day. I miss my friend so badly, but I have grown so comforted by the words of Christ in 1 Thessalonians 4:13 where it talks about.. "We do not grieve as those who have no hope!" While we grieve for Robb's presence, and that he is not here.. I know that he is in heaven, worshipping the Savior! His body went through so much. He at two different times, was declared dead or almost dead by doctors. God gave Robb more time, He wansn't done with Robb yet. And what a testimony it was to those doctors, to see God's hand on Robb's life.

I am doing this fundraising page to help Robb's mom with both funeral costs and also the constant expenses she has had to take care of. Robb was on so many medications and not all were covered by insurance, and due to Robb's heath.. he did not have life insurance..

Please give, if you can...Robb's mom gave so much of her love, and just her all into raising Robb in such a godly way. It's time to give back to HER! :)

Thanks so much for reading this post..Pray for those who are still grieving the loss of Robb Lawson...

See you soon Robbi!
